Determining database and communications.
In today world that is driven by new technology. You either have the choice get on board or be left behind. If a company does not embrace new technology then there is a chance that this company may not last in the competitive world. Business has become global since the invention of the internet.

You also want to know the cost of the equipment so if any is lost you know how much you can charge the shipping company for the loss
A database may work the best for some people in this situation, but others may find a spread sheet more to their liking. A database would be helpful because you can print different sheets for the booth components and the equipment. This would also allow you to see what was ordered and what has arrived to ensure you have everything.
